The few times I’ve worn makeup over the last couple of weeks, I used the same eye combination.  A brightening neutral eye, basic blush, and pink lip is chic, wearable, and most importantly, erases a tired and worn-out appearance.

Pink Pinker Pinkest Eye

I originally meant to share this look while featuring the eyes.  But then things got fun and I decided to sport three different lip looks to show how different variations of lip colors and textures can alter the overall appearance.  And because I was feeling indecisive.  Go figure.
